Best Leatherworking Specialization in Dragonflight

Blizzard Entertainment

Want to get the most out of your Leatherworking specialization in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight? Here's what you need to know.

With the recent release of World of Warcraft's latest expansion, Dragonflight, players new and old have plenty of content and features to get to grips with. In particular, this expansion sees the return of profession specializations, now in the form of talent trees that allow you to obtain many additional benefits from your profession.

Although players can eventually be able to completely max out all their specializations in any given profession, it's much more realistic to master one or two of them due to the amount of time and Knowledge Points needed. In general, the Leatherworking profession has the potential to become one of the top gold-mining professions due to its highly sought-after products of mail or leather armor pieces, weapons, reagents, and even profession tools.

Which is the Best Dragonflight Leatherworking Specialization?

There are four Leatherworking specializations on the Dragon Isles:

  • Leatherworking Discipline
  • Leather Armor Crafting
  • Mail Armor Crafting
  • Primordial Leatherworking

Leatherworking Discipline is all about becoming a more proficient leatherworker. It is devoted to increasing your crafting-specific stats — Inspiration, Resourcefulness, and Multicraft — and improves drums and armor kits.

Leather Armor Crafting focuses on crafting higher-quality Leather, new patterns, and more. It is devoted to crafting high-rank equipment that will be in high demand among many classes. Mastering it provides you with additional Resourcefulness, Inspiration, and Skill.

Similarly, Mail Armor Crafting is also for crafting higher-quality Mail pieces, new patterns and more. Mastering it also provides you with additional Resourcefulness, Inspiration and Skill.

Lastly, Primordial Leatherworking is used for creating Leatherworking equipment with elemental, bestial or decay attachments, and also increases your additional Resourcefulness, Inspiration and Skill.

All four of the specializations have their perks and uses, making it hard to decide definitively which one is the best. Essentially, it all comes down to what you'll get the most use out of. However, your best bet is likely to pick a specialization in either leather or mail armor crafting and work towards it to ensure you get the most value and gold out of your profession. Selling high-quality intermediate crafting materials for lots of gold via Primordial Leatherworking could be another great option as well.
